      I am going with another meetup at Skyline Ridge Open Preserve and the group got parking permits for Saturday evening. They were only able to get 30 permits. They say that anywhere that is dark (no street lights) would be great for viewing/photography.

  • Manoj K.

    We still have one more year to go but if somebody is doing some research as what place we should go, nearest town to stay, if there is any Astro group in that area and high probability of getting clear sky and all, please keep sharing.
